Chapter 1772: Shocked?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In the endless space filled with light floated countless of runes and pictures as light beams connected to massive crystal pillars and forming a structure of concentric circles, and the crystal pillars had a golden hue to it as if they were forged by light, and the universe, was a light forged universe.
In the center of the concentric circles stood a tall crystal tower, and Vivian was standing on the top of the tower, her cold eyes focusing on the runic array and holographic projection before her.
Streams of light extended from behind her, one end was connected to her spine, while another is released into the air, and the floating runes faintly responded to it. As the light stream and runes intertwined, it formed a thousand-meter-long wing of light.
“The Creation’s Engine has been activated, the Crimson Moon system entering secondary processing mode. System synchronization at 96%…”
“E-type data stream entering the highest command node. Control response rate at 100%.”
“All systems green. Releasing limiter for the Engine’s Core Unit.”
“This is Vivian Ancestor, the Creation’s Engine has arrived. The moonlight blesses everyone.”
The cold and ethereal sight had faded away, and Vivian’s own eyes started moving again. She took a deep breath and calmed her the unrest in her mind. Even when she had gone through a couple of simulations, activating both the Crimson Moon and the Creation’s Engine systems and to synchronize them together demanded a hefty computation load, and even with the sprites helping her with the computation, the load that she needs to bear as a ‘Queen Node’ was still enormous.
It was then that she had to agree with what Hao Ren said earlier. “An ace student is what it is, there’s no reasoning with super talented people. A loli goddess who’s missed out on school, lost her memory, and a literal personality split could actually design such a complex system like this… What is her brain made of?”
In the light steam behind Vivian, the sprites popped their heads out one by one, and the excitable little ones did not know what ‘tension’ was. Now at the heart of the Dark Abyss, they actually got excited. “Mistress, Mistress! The system’s activated! The system’s activated!”
“Mistress is so great!”
“Mistress, don’t you want to try releasing all the limiters? It’ll be fun!”
“Anyone saw my psionic calibrator?”
Vivian waved her hand. “This is not the time for fun and games. Focus on the systems. I’m still not used to them, and I need your help to properly control this thing.”
The sprites immediately concurred and turned into streams of light towards the glowing crystal pillars, and in an instant, the runic array and holographic projections before Vivian became much clearer.
She looked at the projection, and over there, Rheia held her arms open as she smugly told the stunned goddess of annihilation, “The real Creation’s Engine comes in a bundle!”
Yes, the Creation’s Engine was actually a bundle, and even from the blueprint it may look like an independently operational product, but the blueprint was only one-half of the engine.
The other half was the Crimson Moon or strictly speaking, Vivian.
Just as Rheia had said before, Vivian was the core of her plans, and that plan involved the Ark of Yggdrasil, the Weave of Destiny, the Godslaying War, and of course, the Creation’s Engine.
After Hao Ren and Vivian’s spirit had filled the gap in each other, only did this hidden part was revealed, the key part of the plan that even Rheia had forgotten herself, and it was the truth of Vivian’s ability to summon the Crimson Moon.
Her Crimson Moon did not have much offensive capability, and it was not just a mere projection of the Star of Creation, the power of the Crimson Moon was simply its nature as a supernatural object, and was not its ‘true nature’. It’s true nature, was the ‘vessel’ for the Creation’s Engine.
Vivian was not just the highest node in the Weave of Destiny, she was also the controller of the Creation’s Engine, the source of command of the engine.
Without the command source, the Creation’s Engine could still operate with the Gilded Disc (or the Heart of God), but it was just an automated weapon system. Only when Vivian took over the control system as part of the “Queen Node”, was the divine artifact considered complete.
In fact, Rheia had planned all of it out when she designed the Creation’s Engine, and Creation’s Engine was not be destroyed after completing its “mission”. It would become Vivian’s own vessel, and the moving server of the Weaves of Destiny’s existence would continue. In the event that the Heart of Destiny ran into issues in the future, the Creation’s Engine would be the new Heart of Destiny.
